In other news, I've been granted a name for the rando horse that continually shows up when I fast travel in Skyrim. Folks, I'd like to introduce you to Horace, the Rando Horse. Thanks for the name, Éric! I'm still looking for a name for the helpful dragon. One was provided, and I do like it, but I'm not in love with it. Any suggestions welcome.
This morning was a sad one. I woke up to find my sports watch band had snapped. It's not a replaceable one, so that means I can't get new ones and just continue wearing my watch. I had hoped to be able to afford a refurbished Apple Watch before that happened. Alas, no. So I shall have to carry around the corpse of my sports watch for when it's needed. It still functions fine. Le sigh.
Also, depressingly, yesterday I was promised a thunderstorm. I did not receive a thunderstorm. I'm irked. Firstly, thunderstorms are about my favourite ever type of weather. Secondly, it might have helped lift the humidity, which is making my life difficult. It's affecting my runs, and I'm not a fan. I have to run in this muck this afternoon. LE SIGH.
And, I'm also sad because I taught my last co-ed kickboxing class for the season. It was so much fun, and my students were really great this semester. They tried, they really worked, and it was so rewarding to see them improve. So, to my students this semester, you are awesome, and I'm so proud of how far you've come in eight short weeks. I hope to see you all again in the autumn.
That doesn't mean that my workload has lifted. I am teaching a new unarmed combat class on Friday evenings, I have my own martial arts training to keep up with, which will be happening three times a week, plus working full time, strength and run training for my two 5Ks this season, my writing, editing and a prepping of two manuscripts to go on submission (as soon as I get comments back from my two manuscript killers)... Not to mention trying to keep up with my podcast stuff... Yeah... I'm swamped. It's a good kind of busy, though, as it's all stuff I quite love.
Speaking of busy, I have to get going if I want to hit my stretch goal of 6K words for the week. It's a long weekend coming up, so there likely won't be a post on Monday. It's a holiday.
Right, I'm off.
